Wow, a huge first hand back from the break.
[Removed:4] raised preflop to 240,000 from UTG/CO and Walid Bou Habib made the call to see a flop of . Bou Habib check-called a bet of 250,000 from Rudelitz before both players checked the turn.
So when the came on the river, no-one was expecting a explosion of action to occur. Bou Habib led out for a chunky looking 725,000 but Rudelitz brought out two stacks of the new 100,000 chip plaques and pushed them into the middle to make it 2 million to go.
Bou Habib took about two minutes before announcing all in for 7.7million as the two biggest stack were now seemingly going to war. Rudelitz looked distinctly pained as if not expecting this to have happened but after a couple more minutes the German made the fold.
